On Thursday Dec. 7, Warriors, along with other Central Texans, were gifted a special holiday treat when snow began falling at approximately 5:20 p.m..

“It’s just great,” Jim Mason ‘21 said. “I’ve lived in Texas all my life and it almost never snows, like this is a lot of snow compared to what I’ve seen before, and I’ve only seen snow actually fall a couple of times.”

“It’s crazy that earlier this week it was like 80 degrees, and now it’s snowing,” Zoe Rowe ‘18 said.
